Egg Cartons


Paper and plastic egg cartons are both recyclable but not the styrofoam ones.


Take back your egg cartons to a local farmers' market to use them again. You can also start seedlings in paper egg cartons. Fill each section with soil and a few seeds. Once the seeds have sprouted, divide the carton into the individual compartments and plant them (carton and all) in the ground.


Egg cartons made of recycled paper are often the last time that paper can be used/recycled since the quality of paper degrades after every time it's recycled.
